 In honor of Memorial Day, here’s a shot of my wonderful grandfather, Gus Erikson’s engineering group of the Army Air Corps 368th Fighter Group, 397th Fighter Squadron (Jabo Angels).  Grampa is in the middle row, second from the right.

Miss you, Grampa.  Miss you every single day.

  1. I love these unit photos; one of the few pictures I have of my Dad when he was young was a picture of his Air Force unit. By the way, I have nominated you for the Janice Brown Puckerbrush Blog Award for Excellence at http://gretabog.blogspot.com/2009/06/puckerbrush-award-for-excellence.html.
